## 55.1 Functions and Variables for ggf

Option variable: GGFINFINITY

Default value: 3

This is an option variable for function `ggf`.

When computing the continued fraction of the generating function, a partial quotient having a degree (strictly) greater than GGFINFINITY will be discarded and the current convergent will be considered as the exact value of the generating function; most often the degree of all partial quotients will be 0 or 1; if you use a greater value, then you should give enough terms in order to make the computation accurate enough.

See also `ggf`.

Categories:  Package ggf

Option variable: GGFCFMAX

Default value: 3

This is an option variable for function `ggf`.

When computing the continued fraction of the generating function, if no good result has been found (see the GGFINFINITY flag) after having computed GGFCFMAX partial quotients, the generating function will be considered as not being a fraction of two polynomials and the function will exit. Put freely a greater value for more complicated generating functions.

See also `ggf`.

Categories:  Package ggf

Function: ggf (l)

Compute the generating function (if it is a fraction of two polynomials) of a sequence, its first terms being given. l is a list of numbers.

The solution is returned as a fraction of two polynomials. If no solution has been found, it returns with `done`.

This function is controlled by global variables GGFINFINITY and GGFCFMAX. See also GGFINFINITY and GGFCFMAX.

To use this function write first `load("ggf")`.
